Collector Cases for Amiibo

$10,027

Video games are more than what they used to be, they have become entertainment, art and even a currency. Many video games have substantial monetary and historical value. If you are anything like us, then we know you want to preserve that value. Safeguard your figures for the future of mankind!

Phewwww, these figures are safe!
Phewwww, these figures are safe!

There are already similar cases to protect action figures, video games and playing cards. However, the Amiibo figures have their own special size, and will require their own special cases. Help us fund the production of a custom case designed to perfectly fit, protect and display these figures for everyone to see.

But will it really "PROTECT" my figure?

Yes! The most important feature of the design is building structure and stability. Each Collector Case can hold more than 20 lbs. on-top of it without crushing it! We were able to get over 30 lbs. in our tests before the case started to show signs of deformation or squishing. 

Don't believe it? Just watch...

The Hard-Work is already done!

  • Planning of the product [DONE]
  • Designing of the product [DONE]
  • Finding a manufacturer [DONE]
  • Arrange shipping from factory to New York [DONE]
  • Approve of final design [DONE]
  • Order final product sample [DONE]
  • Test the sample on EVERY figure [DONE]
  • Approval of final product [DONE]
  • Send Payment for MOQ

All that is left to do is to gather enough people to cover the cost of "Machine Setup Fees" and "Minimum Order Quantity". 

The Design

  • Custom designed for a perfect fit! These cases are not an off the shelf design. We hired a packaging designer to create the proper design with the specific needs in mind.
  • Compatible with all versions of the figures (Yes we tested all current 36 figure designs!)
  • Locking Lid to keep the figure inside if it were to ever fall or tumble.
  • Secure Self Locking Bottom ensures figures cannot fall out of the bottom.
  • Stack-able and Stable. We have easily stacked 7 figures securely on top of each other.

Instant Gratification!

Ok, it's not quite instant but much faster than the typical project. You do not have to wait 1 Year or even 6 Months. The turnaround time on this is much faster because everything has been approved. Our estimated turnaround time for production is 20-25 days! How exciting is that! It's like clicking "BUY IT NOW" and then realizing that it come from some far away part of the world! (except your actual order will be shipped 20 days later from New York with tracking)

All sarcasm aside, our background comes from years of running e-Commerce sites on eBay, Amazon, Google, Etsy and more! Your Collectors Cases will be carefully packed and promptly shipped with tracking from our facility in New York.

Risks and challenges

At this point the risks are very low and we have already handled the majority of the challenges before considering to do a Kickstarter campaign. Our production partners have fully insured the entire production from start to finish. We have already received a small shipment (6 pcs.) of the final product and they were designed to specification.

Yes, there could a natural disaster or maybe the west cost port strikes expand to the East Coast Ports. Even the plot to the 1997 Tommy Lee Jones movie "Volcano" could happen in New York and a giant erupting volcano would be the reason that we can not deliver the product to the post office. Giving the popularity and lengths that some people have gone to get some figures God himself could melt all the Amiibo's in the world under the Second Commandment "Thou shalt have no other gods before me"

    1 YEAR SUPPLY!

    Lets face it.. There's basically 6 new figures per month for the foreseeable future! 36 figures at the time of shipping + 9 months renaming in the year put the total at !!! 90 FIGURES!!!

    Factor in a few variants and special editions (ie. unknown silver Mario) and you can call it an even 100pcs!

    Thats right.. You basically have planned to spend $1300 a year on little tiny figures..the ironic part is you can probably resell them for more!
